Who else would walk around the Tidal Basin carrying a video camera and post the results to YouTube? It was a crowded Sunday with the blossoms in full bloom.
Equipment: Canon HF21 Video Camera, Manfrotto tripod and two shoe strings using the Chappelle Walking Camera Technique.
Due to construction at the Jefferson Memorial there was a detour around the Memorial which made for a necessary edit in the shot that otherwise would have been continuous. One other edit was made while walking across the long bridge because it was just too crowded and too slow and not the most scenic of locations along the walk.Who else would walk around the Tidal Basin carrying a video camera and post the... more

Sean Combs has gone from felon to Royal in one fell swoop.
There are certain things that I do not need to know, like who designed Kate Walsh‘s jewelry when she is on some red carpet. Well, or anyone’s jewelry on a red carpet come to think of it. Sure. I like to know who designed the dresses, but the jewelry? Who cares? It’s not like the TV viewing audience is running to Google Neil Lane and ordering the diamond encrusted emerald earrings. For the most part, that information is blather. In this age of celebrity hounding, there’s way too much information out there and it is really getting nauseating. It makes no sense why Donald Trump gets as much air time as he does. I cannot wait for the new hopeful First Lady, Melania to be on QVC hawking her costume baubles while First Daughter, Ivanka, will be duking it out hustling her real bauble collection on Gilt City. Sayonara Neil Lane. The world is changing and it is beginning to smell like 3-day old leftover fish.
Reports have it that P. Diddy, or is it Puff Doody or Sean Comb Over, oh, that’s Donald Trump, well, you know who I mean, received a three car police escort this past weekend from Hammerstein Ballroom to East Orange, New Jersey where the rapper was set to perform a song or two under a $75,000 contract. Really? Are you glad to know that? I sure as hell am not. It is THAT fact that speaks volumes as to the ills of our society, and why every schnook wants to be a star. You too, can walk around saying the N-word, encrusted in gold with diamonds in your teeth while New York City cops deliver you from paid gig to paid gig. Call me an old fogie…fine by me. But if you think that is cool, then you probably buy counterfeit LV bags on Canal Street.
In other riveting news that makes my skin crawl, Charlie Sheen received a police escort in Washington DC, this past weekend so he could get to his concert, for lack of a better term, performance wouldn’t apply. Sheen had to zip off to Los Angeles to try and get custody of his kids. How about the cops throw him in a lock down rather than deliver him in a timely fashion to spew nonsense? Eek.

The next election will be a Facebook landslide....Obama wins.
The film, The Social Network has forced Mark Zuckerberg to come out of the shadows, rather, his computer screen. Since then, it seems that Facebook, which I used to like, has evolved quickly into a mass marketing machine. I am accosted with invitations to utter nonsense making my email inbox seem like a spam free zone, which it is not. Gone are the good old days when long-lost eighth grade classmates would stalk me now that that they see I am no longer a fatso however they are. We see Mark Zuckerberg everywhere: Dinners, power meetings with President Obama or Kanye West, The Barbara Walters Special, 60 Minutes, The Real Housewives of Silicon Valley, well, stay tuned for that but you get my drift.
Hats off to Zuckerberg for changing the landscape of social media, but now it feels more like strangers are tweaking my viral nipples to attend their fundraiser or solo art show, a.k.a. things that I will never attend. Since Mark has decided to sell out, Facebook is evolving into a viral version of automated telephone solicitations. Facebook was instrumental at creating a sense of community, but now it is becoming a 24-hour advertising spam-athon. There are even websites and marketing classes that teach us how to promote our products via Facebook. Since Zuckerberg commit to giving away a large percentage of his money, maybe has he gotten buyers or sellers remorse and wants to bundle up more billions in true Donald Trump fashion? We have all become Social Media Climbers and there is nothing fierce about that. There is no intrinsic value to being barraged with offers and discounts. It is beyond contrary to a spiritual path and personal growth. Sure, I hope Obama and Zuckerberg craft the best possible platform to help secure his 2012 win for a second term. But outside of that, please take your invitation to the Hot Rod & Frequency Hookup and shove it.

By Easton Williamson|Hoodwatch Media,Nevada: Thursday February 24, 2011 paramedics were called to the Decatur Georgia address of music producer Lord Hector Diono. Sources in Atlanta said the music man stopped breathing after an hour of rapid panting and an accelerated heart rate said to be brought on by dehydration and and mild kidney failure;according to his wife Jacquelyn Chambers, she walked through the front door of their home to find the former rapper turned producer sitting straight up in his chair staring into the air with a blank facial expression and breathing fast like a dog would breathe, she went on to tell me that Hector was taken to Emory University hospital via ambulance and blood test were run. Hector was treated and release approximately one o'clock this morning with a stern warning from the doctors there to get some rest and and to eliminate salt from his diet because of his blood pressure reading, two hundred and two over one hundred eleven. Hector who's real name is Lord Michael Chambers-Rosenthorn was treated by Melissa Javier Lamberson,M.D. board certified since 1999 who's affiliations include Emory University Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital,Atlanta, GA. The producer refused to be kept overnight for observation and reportedly demanded to be released after he becoming coherent. The producer is home and resting, a spokesperson for Hector announced that Hector can be "a hard headed stubborn mule" when it comes to settling down and getting the rest he needs, but assured us Hector will probably take the good advise of his Doctors and get the rest he needs before finishing his upcoming music projects for this year. by Easton Williamson|Hoodwatch Media, Nevada http://webforhealth.com/ http://www.emoryhealthcare.org/index.html http://www.medicinenet.com/smoking_effects_pictures_slideshow/article.htmBy Easton Williamson|Hoodwatch Media,Nevada: Thursday February 24, 2011 paramedics... more
Heard a thing on NPR last week about how the black population in Washington is declining…. being forced out by higher rent. I wonder why?
